I am constantly learning to be patient.Waiting is not easy, especially when I am waiting on something good. 

  • If we truly love something, someone and especially God, one of love's greatest attributes is patience. Just look at 1 Corinthians 13:4. Patience is the first attribute of love in the list! If I say I love Jesus, then I will be patient for the things He is doing in my life.

  • Even in my moments of crisis, I need to wait. In my waiting I can keep asking God for an answer, a miracle and a move. And, like David experienced in Psalm 40:1, God will answer our cries if we wait.

  • Even when I am doing the best I can, and working for the best possible cause, I will still have to wait. I will have to wait to see results. Sometimes as a pastor this is hardest. I pour my life into seeing others discover life in Jesus and experience life change, and sometimes I don't see the results I want to. But Galatians 6:9 says that I should not give up, because in my patience and time I will eventually see the reward.
